The Julie Ruin Cancel Tour Dates Due to Illness


We just got word that The Julie Ruin are cancelling all their live tour dates through September, including our own 4Knots Music Festival, due to Kathleen Hanna’s recent relapse with Lyme Disease. If you’ve seen the excellent documentary about her, The Punk Singer (now streaming on Netflix, btw), or read any of the press on the run-up to The Julie Ruin’s stellar last album, Run Fast, you know about Hanna’s long and hard struggle with the disease. In this most recent relapse, she is being advised by her doctor to start a difficult three-month course of treatment that will make it impossible to travel. “The Julie Ruin are disappointed to postpone these appearances, however they are confident that taking this time off will allow Hanna to heal so that they can continue touring in the future” we’re told.

We’re currently working on a replacement for The Julie Ruin at 4Knots.

Please send Kathleen good vibes, and keep her in your thoughts. Get well soon, Kathleen.
